As most of you are aware, Ryo Chonan has signed with the UFC. However those hoping to see Chonan attempt another flying scissor heel hook on Anderson Silva will just simply have to wait.

Sherdog is reporting that Chonan will be moving down to the 170 lb weight division. Chonan is expected to make his UFC debut on November 17, at UFC 78 in Newark, New Jersey, as he takes on ATT’s Thiago Alves. It’s the “Piranha” vs. the “Pitbull”.
